Together, we can renew hope for cerebral palsy

Worldwide, over 18 million children and adults are living with cerebral palsy (CP)—impacting everyday life for many. With cerebral palsy, there is a demand to discover new ways to regain lost motor, speech and cognitive abilities. At the Burke Neurological Institute, we work across neurological conditions and abilitiesMotorPain & SensoryCognitive, and Visionto address symptoms as well as the cause.

A breakthrough for one person to restore ability could be a breakthrough for many, no matter how or why it originated.

Kids participating in CP research

“BNI brings basic science and clinical research together and enables collaboration between the two. We work with children with Cerebral Palsy and our collaborations with peer institutions such as Columbia, Weill Cornell Medicine and Blythedale Children’s Hospital enables us to rapidly bring the best science to them to impact their function and most importantly, their lives.” — Dr. Kathleen M. Friel

You have an important role to play in CP research

Participating in cerebral palsy research takes courage and bravery. That is why our participants are at the center of discovery. We treat symptoms in carefully monitored clinical trials that apply the latest neuroscience, drug therapies, treatments and technological devices. We go beyond current medicine and rehabilitation to test-drive innovations for prevention and recovery through neurological repair and neuro-restoration.
